Doing "neutral drops" is bad, but it's a lot of fun if you have access to a car you don't care about, like one seized from terrorists in Iraq. They didn't need it any more, so we practiced J-turns in it. After making your high speed reverse, drop to neutral and crank the wheel to bring the front around. Simultaneously floor the gas, and when the car is heading 180 degrees the other direction, drop it in gear. You can get a good rolling burnout. And that was in an Opel. I did it about a billion times before the tranny started slipping.

And people say Iraq isn't fun...

So which of these driving styles work on your engine mounts?...tranny mounts?
And trust me you WILL be able to tell when something is damaged. The previous owner of my car must had did everything you posted on a daily basis. I have all kinds of slack in my drivetrain along with all kinds of bangs and vibration's. Im working on getting another DD so I can start to fix this thing.

haha, sn95 i guess so. im REAL REAL REAL paranoid about these things, i love having fun in my car but i dont want stuff to break.

i also want to gun it here and there, but i dont want my car to be ragged out..

so i guess i just have to stay off the gas till i get a drivetrain rebuild, ja?

as far as i have seen thus far with beating the snot outta my car, being close to stock, the weakest link is the stock T45 transmission... the z-links inside that are pretty much your like shifting rods, SUCK lol they went in my last tranny hammerin first to second did NOT mis shift... i do it with the tranny in my car now...

the T45 in my car now, is a used tranny from another 98 GT, and well, it doesnt shift very smoothly makes tons of noise all the time lol a vibrates like you wouldnt believe at say 120mph... BUT luckily keisler builds a real nice T45 for only like 850 bucks... its the T45R if you check it out... i do believe our resident manual tranny guru is rj8806?? its where he works he is the tech guy i think... the T45R they build will eliminate dam near all the issues with the trans from the factory... and from what he says about his T45RS (which is like 1300 bucks if you really wanna build up a mean tranny) they make a real nice smooth T45...

its healthy to let your pony gallop every now and again, just dont do it all day everyday at every stop... NEVER do it ice cold, always wait for operating temp or at least a nice warm day with a decent idle period... torque her up, dont lose traction, rev her right up to say like 4500 rpm in first and second and then just coast... its a lot of fun

so what im hearing is, as long as you dont do that stuff consistently, it doesnt do that much damage, and when something goes, just replace it?

i have 159k on my car, and im planning to do a rebuild once i get more money... (dam you money.. would do so much without that restriction)....

i have so many plans for my car, are 98 gts worth "restoring" per say?

mine cost me 1300 bucks with a wrecked nose, air bags deployed... it took me about 2 months to straighten her out and get everything really dam close to being perfect...and oh ya, it was worth it!!

and yes, cleaning out the carbon and such, is a good thing every now and again... ALSO did you know that letting a car sit at idle for long periods of time is actually WORSE than hammering the snot out of it?? cuz the oil stays low in the motor and isnt spraying all over the place it does upper end damage after a while... but you will have a nice tight lower end for a long time lol...

if your motor dont knock tick or anything throughout the rpms... dont reccommend u go beyond 6k, you should be just fine... and besides, what did you buy the car for anyway?? to drive it like grandma ALL DAY every DAY?? i think not so, feel free let her play, i dont think you should be launching at like 3000rpm you know clutch dump but like get goin in gear at about 1500rpm push the pedal about 3/4 to the floor board, jump up to about 4500-5000 then shift into second and keep cruisin, wont hurt her... providing you shift right...

the biggest thing an automatic has over us 5 spd guys, is the constant torque on the drivetrain... so there are no snapping or jerking sensations like there are when beating on a 5 spd car... so try to smoothen out ur shifts and your "flooring it" periods, and enjoy the car every now and again...

and under the theory of "if it aint broke, don fix it" run ur car, dont strap a supercharger to it at 159k lol but play with it, enjoy the car... you cant put a price on happiness, or makin the girl of your dreams smile if you break somethin, upgrade to something better... ya it may not be an opportune time to upgrade, so just put the pennies away that you would use to mod (i have 50/week go into my savings and i try to keep it so that only my savings account is what controls the mod bug) so keep it aside, when you brake something, say its your driveshaft, you had a weak u-joint and it snapped then ur driveshaft bent all up, take the extra money and go buy an aluminum driveshaft... might as well while ur in there right??

and as for the are 98GTs worth it?? dude, if anything you have the upper hand already cuz u dont have a car that you make a payment on for $30,000 every month... secondly, can you imagine if in say 3-5 yrs u spent 30,000 on your car???? you would have something certainly MUCH faster/better than a brand new GT... this is my theory with my car... after a while... after breaking enough stuff, EVENTUALLY i will have a brand new 98GT... so how can i go wrong??

you ask is a 98GT worth restoring? abso-F*&%$ing-lutely lol its really all about the body style you prefer... and ME, i love the SN95...hence my screen name... new edge and aero, but i prefer the aero 94-98 body better... looks more aggressive in my book

really all you need is a tranny, headlights (lol you SN95 guys know what im talkin about), PI swap, and someday a supercharger... (with all the necessities taht come along with the supercharger lol sub-frame connectors increased fuel delievery a tune etc) i say go for it...

and whatever you do! DO NOT SELL THE CAR!!! keep it no matter what and in the end you will have MORE than what you were lookin for
